Scotland's biggest animation film festival has announced its October 2016 dates as follows:
Glasgow: 14-16th 2016
Edinburgh: 17-23rd 2016
In previous years, the charity has brought many animated film premieres to Scotland, long before they are released outside of Japan. Along with an excellent selection of films, the event also welcomes Japanese guest speakers and education days which encourage artistic talent within Scotland.
Controversially, their first weekend will coincide with Glasgow's Rai-con event. As festival director Andrew Partridge pointed out on SLA's Facebook page, these dates were posted on December 13th last year on their homepage; prior to Rai-con's dates being announced.
I'm looking forward to their 2016 schedule. Given the diverse list of new and recent films from previous years, there's always something to look forward to. As SLA returns for its 6th year, it continues to grow in popularity, attracting fans from across the UK, and even some from central Europe.
From their Facebook page:
We're pleased to confirm our 2016 dates! Due to renovation work at our partner venue in Glasgow, we're one week later than usual but got plenty lined up already...
As always, we can't wait to share our programme for October 2016 in due course!
